Don’t get me wrong, I am a girly girl and I love getting dressed up to the nines, but I am at my most comfortable when I throw on a great pair of jeans and a tee. This look truly works for any occasion. Whether it’s a shopping spree, lunch with the girls, a family get together or even a night out. Yes, even a night out. All you need to do is change up the accessories and shoes and this outfit is the most versatile of all. In my latest Sunday Style Fix, these white and blue pieces are to die for.
In my opinion, I feel like every girl should wear highlighter. Do you know why? Because it is such a simple addition to your makeup routine and you don’t even really need to master a technique to achieve that natural glow. Sweeping on a little highlighter on your cheekbones, forehead, nose, cupids bow and anywhere you want a little glow, works wonders. For me, it instantly makes me look wide away, fresh, dewy and flawless. I am so excited to share part 2 here with you.
1. Kevin Aucoin – Celestial Powder – Candlelight
I haven’t been using this highlighter for long, perhaps about a year now, but it has superseded any highlighters I have ever used and is now my number one. Reason being, it’s perfect to use during the day as well as in the evening. The colour payoff this highlighter gives, is something I have never seen before. Such a beautiful sheen of champagne is transferred to your skin, without it looking to sparkly, over the top and just makes you look naturally dewy, which is the look Ipersonally love. I dust this wherever I can, as it will never look too cakey or shimmery. Cheekbones, bridge of my nose, forehead and cupids bow. It will give you the most perfect glow. It is on the pricey side, but it lasts. Purchase Here
2. Mac – Soft & Gentle – Minerelize Skin Finish
Soft & Gentle was the first highlighter I ever purchased years ago, and you wouldn’t believe, how long it has lasted! I love using this on nights out, as it does stand out but again, doesn’t look overly glittery. It’s probably one of the most popular highlighters and I even use this as an eyeshadow, especially on the inner corners of my eyes, which instantly brightens and opens up my eyes. A staple in my collection and will always be up there as one of my favourites Purchase Here
3. Benefit FInishing Touch Facial Glow
I have had this liquid highlighter in my makeup kit for nearly 10 years and is a classic. In it’s liquid form, it’s so natural, dewy and there is no way you can over do it with this hightlighter. It has a soft rose sheen, which can be applied underneath foundation, mixed with your moisturiser or foundation or even worn alone. I like to pat it gently onto my cheek bones and swipe the remainder off my finger down the bridge of my nose which immediately gives me that wide awake look. Unfortunately, this product is discontinued, I don’t know why but you can purchase a similar version, by Benefit called High Beam. Purchase Here
4. The Balm – Betty Lou Manizer
Now this little beauty is the newest addition to my collection and boy is it addictive. If I could wear this highlighter when just lounging around the house, I would. It makes me feel so pretty, girly and instantly illuminates my complexion. Again, not too shimmery, just the right amount of highlight to compliment and finish off the rest of your makeup. Great to add to the inner corners of your eyes to open them up subtly and works like a dream with the Bronzing Bandit Bronzer, mentioned above. Purchase Here
5.Mac – Stobe Liquid Lotion
I cannot live without using this on my clients. I like to use this on top of moisturiser and before foundation. The dewiness that shows through is so subtle and allows your skin to look naturally flawless. I then like to dab this onto the high points of the cheekbones and looks even better in photography. This can also be worn over moisturiser for a natural dewy day time look and gives you and instant boost to dull and tired skin. One word, stunning.Purchase Here

It looks like winter is well and truly behind us, well for at least another few months, and that means one thing, ok well two things….it means we can put away the black and we can put away the jumpers. It’s time to bring some colour to your wardrobe and in my opinion mustard is the way to go. It suits every complexion and most of all, brightens your day. If you are popping out for a bit of lunch or some retail therapy, this colour is the way to go. I am obsessed and love how mustard compliments blue jeans, teamed with some cute flats, brings the whole look to a complete. What do you think of my latest Sunday Style Fix?
Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a sucker for bronzers and highlighters. I love the effect it has on transforming my look and the colour and glow it brings to my complexion. If I am not bronzed and highlighted, then I won’t have a good day. You don’t have to go overboard with bronzing and highlighting, the last thing you want to look like is an orange glitter ball! Less is more, believe me. Brace yourself, I got a little excited writing this post as there is so much to say! Here is Part 1 in my Bronzer and Highlighters installment.
1. Chanel Soleil Tan De Soleil
This bronzer is by far my favourite day time bronzer as it is the perfect shade for day time makeup. It’s not too orange, no sparkle and it has a lovely sheen to it when applied to the skin which actually makes my skin look like I have caught a little bit of the sun. This is the most natural looking bronzer I have ever bought and will continue to invest in this product. It is on the pricey side, but in my eyes, completely worth it. I personally wouldn’t use this as a contour, but perfect for bronzing up your complexion and adding a healthy glow. Purchase Here
There is nothing that makes me feel better than having gorgeous hair. But one thing that makes me feel even better than that, is big voluminous gorgeous hair, who doesn’t right? I have tried countless products and have gone through phases of loving and hating products but I have finally mastered my perfect big hair routine and here is where I am going to share it with you.
Step 1: Shampoo & Conditioner Alterna Bamboo Abundance Shampoo and Alterna Bamboo Abundance Conditioner I have tried so many shampoos and conditioners that claim big voluminous hair, but none have ever stuck or worked with me. Then I came across the Alterna range. Firstly, what intrigued me to this line was that they are parabens free. Parabens are used in a lot of beauty products and I for one, like to avoid products that contain them.
